Finished Curse of Lono yesterday evening.|
Thought I'd start with that Kem Nunn book Tapping the Source, maybe read a few pages.
Well, sheesh! That book sucked me right in and there was no way I could put it down. Finished it a little after 5 AM, finished it in one 7 hour session.
Even if you don't care a lick about surfing, it doesn't matter - that's just a periphery. Guess you could call it noir. Book flowed really well - something I'd definitely recommend reading, especially for the people on here in their late teens/early twenties.

At the moment I am reading a delightful story - "Dewey" by Vicki Myron. It is set in the township of Spenser in Iowa and is a true story It is a refreshing book - no violence, no explicit sex and the only four letter " F" word I have come across so far is FOOD. I recommend it to all animal lovers.|

Just finished reading: 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas' by John Boyne.|
Despite it being quite disturbing, it is something I would recommend. Lest We Forget.

"Atomised" Michel Houellebecq|
A weird, wacky but wonderful novel.

Right now, I'm going to start reading "Secrets of Eden". I was happy to find an autographed copy at a Barnes & Noble.|

Good to see someone else who is sick enough to appreciate Michel Houllebecq's writing :)|
I'm currently reading a biography of Orson Welles by Barbara Leeming (guess what I'm planning a quiz on) and am dipping in and out of "The QI Book of the Dead".

I'm reading Deborah Ellis's second book, Parvana's Journey. It's the sequel to her book The Breadwinner. Very good, realistic descriptions!|

I thought I would pick up J.D. Salinger's "Nine Stories" again, as I appear to be one of the few who thought "The Catcher In The Rye" was a pretentious load of hooey. |
I will finish the book tonight, and no more Salinger for me. I think I will revisit John Cheever...

I have just finished reading Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel. It is based around the time of Henry VIII and his machinations to wed Anne Boleyn. Thomas Cromwell is the central character. Interesting read but I found the style a bit heavy going at times.|
